“Great sightings of predators in action” - LesleyP

Simply fantastic wildlife sightings mobile camping in Botswana

Views: 161 Visited: Sep 2017 Reviewed: Sep 29, 2017

We travelled with Tony McKeith of Busanga Safaris as group leader on a mobile camping trip in Northern Botswana that took in Savuti, Khwai and Moremi.

Our tents were "no frills" and comfortable and we were very well-looked after by an enthusiastic, friendly camp team who did an amazing job of providing a delicious and different meal for lunch and dinner every day for 9 days out in the bush.

Our guide was Shadreck and he had great local knowledge of each area we visited and he worked hard to ensure we had the most wonderful wildlife sightings. In fact we saw so much that looking back on the trip I can hardly believe how good it was. The highlights list includes female leopard with 6-week old cub, leopards mating, leopard eating a kill in a tree, 4 coalition male lions with a buffalo kill, a large pack of wild dogs with 9 puppies... and that's just some of the predator sightings! Large breeding herds of elephants were another feature of the trip in each park. My favourite was watching two herds of around 20 from a mokoro - we were able to drift silently along the channel to be really close to them drinking. Just breath-taking.

At the end of the camping, we flew out over the Delta to Gunns Camp where we stayed for 3 nights. This was just the perfect end to the trip as it was so relaxing going out on a boat every day and drifting through the channels, watching elephants drinking at the water's edge and the lovely birdlife.

I have been travelling either on trips organised by Tony or with him for 8 years and each trip has absolutely delivered what he promises. I'd highly recommend this Botswana trip for the great wildlife but also to go mobile camping in the bush to have a totally different experience from staying in a fixed camp or lodge.
